Well I use a 60" Dixie Chopper and I love the machine. I was thinking of buying a smaller Walker to do the backyards rather than push mow, and it seems I am getting more and more properties that want to be bagged. I am wondering whether I should get a Walker. I probably have 10-15 accounts and growing w/ backyards that need to be mowed. I don't want to really spend over 3k on a walker b/c it will be used so little as compared to my dixie. I would also think of marketing the bagging as well mulching w/ the dixie. But would a Walker under 3k just be a maintanence hassle? What about the older chain drives? Are they junk? Are aerators super expensive for these machines? Should I just get a 36" walkbehind w/ bagging capabilities? Also how are Walkers when things are wet, would they be better than the dixie when wet? Any suggestions are appreciated.
